COMMENTS FROM THE PASTOR:
Easter is almost upon us, can you believe it? The time of year when our attention is centered on the death, burial, and the resurrection of The Lord Jesus Christ. I hope you will make plans to be with us for our Easter Sunday service as we kick off our spring revival with Dr. Ron Lynch, who will be bringing our Easter message and Chosen Road will be bringing special music. There will be a “Son”Rise service at 7:30 AM and a breakfast to follow in the fellowship hall. Come, let us worship our living risen Lord together!
Matthew 28:6, “He is not here: for he is risen as he said.”
The women that had come to the tomb of Jesus were not expecting to see the stone rolled away, nor were they expecting to see the tomb empty, they were not expecting a living Jesus. They were expecting to see a dead Jesus. The spices that they were carrying and their broken hearts lets us know that even though The Lord had taught that He was going to get up out of the grave on the third day, that these ladies were not expecting Him to actually do this. To the amazement of all present at the tomb, the Roman guards who were so frightened that they became like dead men, and the ladies who must have been greatly startled not only by the Angels, but by the earth quake. These ladies were then shown an empty tomb and were told that the Lord Jesus had risen from the dead; don’t you know that the earth quake on the inside of these ladies was far greater than the earth quake that was taking place on the outside of them. The first thing that the angels instructed these ladies to do is go and tell. Have you met the risen Jesus? If His resurrection real to you? Then what are you waiting for? Go and Tell!
“And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: Lo, I have told you.”
In Christ, Ricky
